{#154} shipwrecked sweethearts

{colors} slate, black pearl, white & brass
{description} There is something romantic about being shipwrecked on a beautiful deserted island. I'm thinking of a secret elopement with no one around except you and your better half {oh and a photographer because you want your wedding day captured on film or maybe not} But if eloping is not your thing, you can easily adapt this theme to share the day with your family and friends. The color palette is understated and the decor is filled with various trinkets you would typically find in treasure chest. Scattered pearls, old bottles, skeleton keys and brassy telescopes are a few ideas. Still not convinced? Just picture the bride with her tousled hair wearing a light silk chiffon dress meeting her beau at the water's end and exchange vows with a backdrop of sailing fleets behind them.  Like I said...so romantic.
